7:01 am
oh, and good morning, everyone. dan is taking some well deserved time off. but it's great to have "nightline" anchor dan abrams joining you. it's been a while since we've been together. >> nice to be with you on another chilly day. >> yes. extremely cold. >> i want to take you away from that. it is great to be here, but take a look at this. from freezing cold to giant waves, giant. up to 50 feet high. >> oh, my gosh. >> not a weather story, one of surfing's biggest events. we've got all the highlights from the gnarly mavericks competition at half moon bay. it's in california. >> just hearing dan abrams say gnarly. >> is that a legal term? >> i didn't even sort of give it my full sort of effort. >> oh. we're just getting the show started this morning. >> that's our biggest tease
7:02 am
coming up. >> we've had a lot of coffee as you can tell already. that's one of the few bodies of water not frozen in this country, by the way, after looking at that. there's a lot more cold weather coming up. we'll get to that in just a few moments. we do begin with a stern warning for u.s. olympic athletes. with the games now less than two weeks away, they're being told to be more low key and not wear their red, white and blue colors around sochi where they could be prime terror targets. plus, the u.s. state department has a new travel alert right now. abc's kirit radia is in sochi with more. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. imagine you're an olympic athlete, you've trained your whole life and you finally made it here to sochi to represent your country. but now for security reasons, even the u.s. government is warning you and the rest of team usa to avoid looking too american in public. team usa may have new outfits designed by ralph lauren, but the u.s. olympic committee wants athletes to be careful where they wear them. in a security memo to athletes, the committee suggests they not wear their team logos outside the olympic zone.
7:03 am
the fear is that americans could become targets. that advice came straight from the u.s. state department. >> we generally give this kind of guidance around big international events, particularly if there is some kind of threat like we've seen here. >> reporter: that threat appears to have grown in recent days. the sochi olympics were already on edge after russia's most wanted terrorist urged his followers to attack the games and again just a few weeks ago when twin bombings rocked a nearby city, but the state department issued a new travel alert on friday warning americans about reports of so-called black widows. russian authorities are hunting for a woman they say is a suicide bomber who slipped through the massive security ring. it's enough for some olympic athletes to tell their families to stay home. >> he wanted us to stay home so that he wouldn't have to worry about us, one less thing to be concerned about. >> reporter: others say they're taking precautions. >> we're big fans of the buddy system on our team, so that's -- you know, for starters we have that.
7:04 am
other than that, we're going to be pretty sheltered staying in the village where we are. >> reporter: and i have to say, they're taking security extremely seriously here in sochi. the stadiums will be on lockdown, and the u.s. government will have security teams with the athletes at all times. dan and bianna. >> all right, thanks, kirit. now to the dangerous and relentless arctic air covering the midwest and northeast. it's plunging temperatures to record lows with snow and ice even in the deep south. we're happy to have meteorologist bill evans from abc here in new york with us tracking it all. hey there, bill. >> good morning. nice to be here. thank you very much. that cold air has worked its way all the way down into the deep south all the way down to mccomb, mississippi. now, i'm from mississippi, and i can tell you, when it snows there, it's a big deal. first thought i saw it snow there, i thought the grits factory had exploded. we're looking at what will be snow all across that area. brittany from wabt-tv sent that in. that's our fine abc affiliate there. well, across the country, we're seeing a deep ridge of arctic air coming in. we take you now to where that
7:05 am
deep arctic air has been surging in in san antonio, texas, and houston. yes, that's one of houston's finest trying to navigate the ice. we take you to san antonio where it's very slippery on roadways and highways. expressways have been filled with ice. it's tough driving there. they don't get to do it that often, and they don't get used to it. so there's been accidents everywhere. sterns county, minnesota, we take you there. well, there there's been accidents all along the roadways. this is another one in a series of snow events that have been coming through the area. it looks like detroit is going to set an all-time record snowfall for the entire season. so as the snow comes from chicago to detroit heading eastward today, another round of snow showers, 1 to 3 inches are going to be common across the area throughout the ohio valley into the northeast. this arctic blast is another in a series that will come in dropping these temperatures to some dangerously low levels. 1 and 2 below for chicago. tomorrow and monday. minneapolis 23 degrees below on monday, and you see it's cold, boston all the way down to atlanta. we'll talk more about that coming up. bianna, back to you. >> never-ending winter season. i want to hear more about that grits factory, bill. you're going to have to tell us
7:06 am

7:07 am
fame that landed her in front of a judge. >> famous people tend to just pay people and just pay people and just pay people. i didn't know if the system works, and it does. >> reporter: love was at times emotional on the stand and told the court she's useless with computers, thought she was just sending a direct or personal message and quickly deleted the tweet that she called, just an opinion. the attorney for holmes said that despite being awarded nothing by the jury, his client was the true victor in this case. >> a jury of her peers have determined on listening to all the evidence that rhonda holmes was not bought off. ♪ >> well, holmes had been suing love for $8 million in damages. and, dan, you know better than anyone why this trial was seen as so significant. >> well, it was the judge's ruling early on that made this so important. it was by the judge saying, i'm going to let a jury decide this case, and as a legal matter i'm going to treat what you write on
7:08 am
twitter the same way that we would treat something that you write in "the new york times." that's what made this so important, and it became the first case based on a tweet that went to trial. >> because he could have just dismissed this from the get-go. >> absolutely. >> and said, no, we're still going to go forward. >> many people thought he might and treat the two differently. >> so is this indicative of future cases, we're such a social media driven world. >> well, in particular, based on what people say on twitter, right, the awful things people sometimes say on twitter and how offended people get, i would expect we'll see a lot more cases. >> the moral, don't tweet if you're emotional or drunk. >> yes, be quiet. three times. >> yes, yes. >> don't drink and tweet either. >> right. >> okay, thanks, linzie. time now -- you heard ron, yeah, at the other end. >> with a piece of advice. >> good morning to you, bianna and dan. good morning, everyone. in the news a california man has been detained in egypt where bombings have rocked cairo on the third anniversary of that country's revolution. overnight a car bomb blew up outside of a police headquarters there in cairo,

new information in a case that continues to baffle investigators. police say belvedere went missing christmas eve, the same night his brother salvatore and gianni's fiancee, ilona flint, were found shot in the head in this mall parking lot. >> we're going to have two victims on a 245 shooting. >> reporter: for weeks investigators searched for gianni, who was not named a suspect but was considered a missing person at risk. at first authorities believed a love triangle could be a possible motive, but now police say they are on the hunt for a killer on the loose. >> the person of interest that we are looking for is an unknown race male, 5'10" to 6 feet tall. >> reporter: the belvedere family seen here at a press conference -- >> we love you and miss you very much. >> reporter: -- is offering a $10,000 reward to capture and convict the suspect or suspects involved hoping it will help police unravel this murder mystery. >> it's hard to fathom where this goes, but this, they were killed because of some revenge

7:34 am
shooting in the distance. no confirmation yet if it, in fact, was a meteor or something else. and from streaking meteors to a football stadium, this time we're looking at a time-lapsed video of the construction of the metlife stadium in new jersey, site of next sunday's super bowl between denver and i believe seattle. earth cam's construction cameras documented the progress of the building of the stadium. construction started back in 2007 and it finished almost three years later, the final price tag, $1.6 billion. finally, bill gates, he may be a genius and second richest man on earth, but none of them helped when he was pitted against the world's best chess player. the showdown between gates and grand master magnus carlsen took place on a popular scandinavian tv show. it only took 9 moves and 79 seconds. guess who won that one? carlsen. it was over, checkmate. bill gates' reaction. wow, that was fast. >> well, that's 78 seconds
7:35 am
longer than it would have taken me. >> you think so? i don't know. i think i could have lasted nine moves or so. >> i don't know. >> not well done. >> bill, what do you think? >> i think you regroup and go for checkers. okay? that's what you do. change the game. here's what's going on across the country once again as we go from the great lakes to the northeast, we're looking at another round of snow from a very fast-moving clipper-type situation creating snow from 80, 90 all the way to cincinnati and cleveland here. there's going to be about 3 inches with this throughout the great lakes but it's just been a pounding of snow and bitter cold that's been working its way across much of the country. well, we're looking at temperatures today of only 15 below in minneapolis. and that's not the core of the cold. that's really going to start to come in as we get into monday and tuesday across the great lakes. here's a live shot from detroit. we're looking at some snow that's been falling. gray sky, cloudy across the area. more snow reaching from detroit into western pennsylvania later today. chicago really gets cold monday and tuesday, once again. 3 below on monday, 2 below on tuesday after another round of
